Nintendo 3DS Dominate Hardware Sales, 3DS Games…Not So Much

Written on March 03, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

And Japan goes wild with the Nintendo 3DS but 3DS games miss the mark in the sales chart.

No surprise here. With a year worth of hype, speculation, excitement and hysteria, Japan didn’t fail to please the Nintendo executives as the Nintendo 3DS console dominated the sales chart; and it only needed two days to do so. The Nintendo 3DS has sold 374,764 units throughout the week which is expected for a highly marketed and ground-breaking item.

3DS games on the other hand did well too. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to bank the 1st or even the 2nd spot as the 3DS game Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask only mustered a 3rd place finish below PSP entries Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity and SD Gundam G Generation World. The Professor Layton game banked an impressive 119,591 sales, while other 3DS titles also managed to enter the Top 10 chart.

Hit the break and see the complete console and games chart.

How long does it take to sell 400,000 Nintendo 3DS units in Japan? How about less than half a day?

From Shibuya to Akihabara, Japan goes crazy over the release of the Nintendo 3DS last Saturday. That’s why it’s no wonder that all 400,000 Nintendo 3DS units were immediately sold around 9:00am of the release date, where thousands of customers lined up to get their hands on the groundbreaking handheld console. People who were not so fortunate on getting their hands on the Nintendo 3DS will have another chance of getting it as Nintendo, through the word of mouth of several shops around Japan, said that they’ll be shipping more units soon.

What better way to enjoy your brand spankin' new Nintendo 3DS than to play it with only ONE game.

The long wait is over. Kingdom Hearts for 3DS finally gets a name under triple D's---The Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

At long last! The Kingdom Hearts for the 3DS officially has a name. At Square Enix’s Production 1 press conference, Kingdom Hearts’ director Yasushi Yasue announced that the next game in the Kingdom Hearts series will be called Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Notice the triple D which is a brilliant idea. The game’s use of stereoscopic graphics gives its players a sense of speed and sense of depth while flying or falling.

The team exerted the best they could to make the game action-packed. Players can switch from Kingdom Hearts series protagonists Sora and Riku in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Watch the Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance official trailer after the jump.

Want a sure fire way to get a Nintendo 3DS? Try pre-ordering. If that doesn't work, then see you at the lines.

Only 400,000 out of the alloted 1.5 million Nintendo 3DS units will be available for sale in Japan on release day or February 26th, according to reports.

Nintendo 3DS has 3D Video Recorder?

Written on January 15, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Since the Nintendo 3DS can shoot photos in 3D, why not shoot videos in 3D too? Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata seems to be playing with the thought.

We got 3DS capable of playing video games in 3D, it’s also capable of capturing photos in 3D. So why not make it record videos in 3D as well? That’s not precisely what Satoru Iwata, the CEO of Nintendo Company, said, but he did give a little hint of what might happen once the Nintendo 3DS kicks into full throttle come February.

During a dialogue session between Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata, the two gave some pretty inspiring hints that they may make the 3DS’s 3D photo feature into a video feature. Soon-to-be 3DS owners won’t need to worry of purchasing another console just to get the feature, as the Nintendo executives expresses that the 3D video will come in the form of a firmware update.
